Do sound gear rental policies cover staging structures or lighting? 

Staging structures and lighting generally aren’t covered by a sound gear rental policy. A rental policy is unlikely to cover any owned staging or lighting, and even rented staging and lighting are outside of what sound gear rental policies normally insure.

Organizations that need coverage for staging and lighting may want to look at something like a production equipment rental insurance policy instead. An agent who knows sound equipment rental policies well should be able to assist with finding a production equipment rental policy too.

What risks does a sound gear rental policy protect against? 

Sound gear rental policies typically protect covered equipment against several potential risks that could result in loss or damage. These can include perils such as:

  • Water damage 
  • Fire or smoke damage 
  • Weather-related damage 
  • Theft 
  • Damage while transporting 

Does sound gear rental insurance cover accidental damage? 

While many sound equipment rental policies offer coverage for accidental damage, the protection isn’t necessarily included in every policy. Some policies might exclude damage that results from drops, falls or other mishaps.

Assuming accidental damage protection is wanted, organizations can work with a knowledgeable insurance agent to make sure the protection is included in a particular policy.

How much does a sound equipment rental policy cost?
